Jakes Hotel, Villas and Spa is a Caribbean boho-chic resort on Jamaica’s low key south coast. Despite it’s laid back appeal there is plenty to keep you occupied on the main Jakes property, all presented in Jakes signature style. Everything on site, from the pool, to the bar, to the spa has been designed in a non-intrusive, artsy cool way. If you are looking for an authentic place to stay in Jamaica, with first class dining and plenty of things to do Jakes may just have it all?
Jakes Hotel, Villas and Spa is probably the most talked about place to stay in Treasure Beach, Jamaica. The quintessential bohemian hang-out on the untouched south coast that has grown organically over the last two plus decades as an antithesis to the all-inclusive hotels huddled on the north coast. With a three night mini break on the very near horizon I seized the opportunity to make a reservation at the hip Treasure Beach hotel to see what all the fuss was about and explore the area.
If you are in the vicinity of Treasure Beach you need to find your way to Smurfs Café & Sports Bar. A Treasure Beach institution, this unassuming ‘Café’ has a roomy shaded seating area at the back and the host Miss Dawn serves the BEST BREAKFAST EVER!
Welcome to Treasure Beach – Saint Elizabeth
As a long time north coast dweller I have always wanted to visit the south coast of Jamaica, or more specifically the area around Treasure Beach and Black River. So I recently took the opportunity to drive down to the parish of St. Elizabeth, fondly known St. Bess, the ‘Bread Basket of Jamaica’, to explore the area and celebrate a special occasion in the progress. Follow me on this adventure in the next few posts as we start to explore Saint Elizabeth!
